6mm *should* be OK, but because there is no slightly smaller aggregate in with it (3-4-5mm) it can be tricky to ensure joints are properly filled.
If you can get 3-6mm, it's a much better choice, but 6mm single size would tie you over initially. You would probably find the grit will settle in the joints over the first few weeks, and you'd be well advised to top up with 3-6mm, if you can find it.
I'm surpised Landscape World don't have it. I must raise this with Chris next time I'm in there - if we don't make it easy for folk to get hoild of the right aggregates, it will be impossible to promote the increasingly relevant permable paving systems.
